Q: Which Uwe Boll movie best describes my neighborhood currently?

A: Alone in the Dark.

My basement flooded slightly on thursday night, so I canceled my plans to mop it all up and move the wet stuff out of further harm's way. got it under control, then the power went out at 11pm. Stayed overnight in capitol hill (which didn't get hit nearly as hard as us, it seems), came home to minor damage (a few gutters blown off the house, 10% of my neighbor's garage shingles in my yard), and still no power (as of 5pm friday). 

on the plus side, all the trees that fell in the street = free firewood once the chainsaws come out.
